Samsung has begun rolling out the Android 4.4.2 (KitKat) update to the tough as nails Samsung Galaxy S4 Active (international variant), ever-dependable SamMobile reports. The update has begun rolling out to the tough as nails smartphone in the Netherlands.


The update changes the software version to “I9295XXUCNE5.” Changes include “faster performance, white status bar icons, improved battery life, full-screen album art (which playing music) and a camera shortcut on the lock screen, wireless printing support, ability to set the default messaging and launcher apps, and more.”
